COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A burly and bitter Imperial IPA, Rampant pours a pure copper and carries the sheen of a rightly hopped beer. The Mosaic and Calypso hops bring stonefruit to the front seat, and the addition of Centennials nod towards citrus for a well-rounded aroma. The taste expands these hops with heavy peach tones and a profoundly bitter bite. There is some malt sweetness to stand this beer up, and Rampant’s finish is bone-dry.

This is one of the easiest drinking imperial pale ales I have had. Pour is copper in color with a large white head that pillows and last. Aroma is crisp,clean and hoppy. Very flavorful but not a taste bud killer hoppy and a little sweet. Flavor stay on your palate but in a good way.

Rampant is a fine beer to bring to your wife's friend's house for brunch. It will be widely enjoyed with little pushback. Among dudes that wear shirts with a hop pun on them, this beer will be scorned.

Very light yellow gold in color. Super light and transparent for an Imperial IPA. Expected darker. This is super light. Nose of honeycomb and pine cone. Graham cracker, light cereal and malt. Mellow. Easy drinking. Doesn’t strike me as Imperial. Good though.Not complex.

Pours golden (not copper) with a solid layer of creamy white head. There is a floral soapy hop dominance in both the aroma and taste. Soft texture and quite drinkable. A nice affordable 6-pack...I really feel like NB redeemed an otherwise dull set of releases as of late.

Tulip at DTW airport bar. Nice touch for an airport. Aroma is fruit/peach forward. Appearance is surprisingly light (lighter than hopslam in color). Hop flavors are really tremendous and complex. New favorite from new Belgium here and I am not generally a big fan. Very easy drinking (dangerously so). Big win here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by TheMattTucker

Bottle. Floral and herbal orange hops, biscuity malt aroma. Light copper with a large off-white head, nice lacing. Sweet caramel and bitter herbal hops flavor. Medium sticky body, soft carbonation.

rubbishystuff (1899) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
At Jerry’s in Andersonville. Pale golden color. Not very hoppy and not very malty for an DIPA. Decent but nothing super great. Serving: Cask

Pours a clear medium golden. Good size bubbles and a nice off white head. Nice hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Very smooth in the mouth and more crisp than many imperial IPAs. Nice bitter hops with grass and maybe a bit of grapefruit. Pretty good beer overall.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Citrus, grassy, orange, hoppy, fruity flavors. Grassy, floral, hoppy flavors. Another solid IPA from New Belgium, but it isn’t something that I am going to go out of my way to get again.
